Habayit Hayehudi leadership candidate Naftali Bennett’s website crashed Sunday night after he was endorsed by national-Zionist leading Rabbi Shlomo Aviner.

Bennett’s campaign said over 1,000 people joined Habayit Hayehudi via his website after Aviner’s letter of support was publicized, most within the first hour, leading the site to crash.

“If the site hadn’t broken down, many more people would have joined the party,” Bennett’s campaign said. “We will make sure to get to those who couldn’t sign up, and call for them to try again.”

Aviner, who is a vocal supporter of National Union MKs Ya’acov Katz and Uri Ariel’s Tekuma party, said on Sunday that it would be a “wasted blessing” to vote for candidates other than Bennett.

The rabbi added that Bennett, as well as Ayelet Shaked and former IDF chief Rabbi Avichai Rontzki, can effectively make Habayit Hayehudi’s ideology a reality and help the party grow.
